Regular readers may have noticed that I have a deep, abiding love for both puns and Halloween. Celebrating the combination of the two is becoming an annual tradition around here; see Top 10 Punny Halloween Costumes and 10 More Punny Halloween Costumes if you missed them the first time around (and especially if you need a last-minute costume idea).

But you know what I like better than puns or Halloween costumes? Animals. And you know what I like better than animals? Animals in punny Halloween costumes, of course. Why, they’re pawsitively purrfect!

If you’re a pun/Halloween/animal lover like me, these costumes will leave you ast-hound-ed and a-mew-sed.
